“Return of the Sage” is the novelization of the life, discoveries, writings, and ruminations of Abu Nasr al-Farabi, the towering intellectual figure in the Middle Ages who was known as the Aristotle of Central Asia and the Middle East. During his many travels, al-Farabi intensively studied the subtle aspects of the various cultures he encountered and developed his philosophy, which he detailed in his numerous treatises.

The leading contemporary Kazakh writer, Anuar Alimzhanov, has written an impressive novel about this legendary scholar.

His keen eye and refined style will pique western intellectual readers’ interest and leave them as tranquil as one of the exquisite gardens described in this book.

    Final Respects

    Abdi-Jamil Nurpeisov

    We, the Kazakhs…
    Western readers know little about this people or their vast country, the world’s ninth largest, although the Kazakhs have seen much of human history. From their roots as traders and nomadic herders during the Silk Road period, to their modern experience with atomic bomb testing and space-age triumph, the history of Kazakh culture remains relatively unexplored in the Western world.

    Even less known is author Abdi-Jamil Nurpeisov, venerated sage of Kazakh and Russian literature, though his books have been published in translation worldwide. Nurpeisov exposes Kazakh life to Western readers as Tolstoy did with Russians, and Marquez, Colombians.
